Want Sky Go but cant install it? We have news

Fragmentation. Android? Can. Open. Worms. Everywhere.


Sure, we know that some apps appear on Android and they’ll only work on certain phones. We could get into a big ‘ole discussion about it but hey, it’s Friday and I can smell the beer from here.

We’ve heard news that Sky Go, and other apps from Sky, will shortly be “officially supporting” the following ICS phones…

Samsung Galaxy Nexus
Samsung Galaxy Note
Samsung Galaxy S3

The Samsung triplets aren’t the only phones either. Ice Cream Sandwich users with a Sensation XE, Sensation or Galaxy S2 will be enjoying the fun too.

Although the HTC Incredible S, Desire HD and Desire S haven’t had their ICS upgrade yet, Sky will be supporting those once the new OS arrives.

    I have SE Arc, is not supported, apparently because it has a HDMI direct output on the device, accordingly to SE support. Sky can not have Sky Go on a mobile device where the HDMI output is enabled or something. Does the latest Samsung devices have direct HDMI output? I am a Sky subscriber, it will certainly push me towards Samsung SIII or iOS device next, since it seems like complete nonsense I can not access something I am actually paying for. I have highlighted android fragmentation in the past this is a clear example, not just with OS version but with manufacturers as well, surely SE can just let Sky disable the HDMI when Sky Go is running?

    So I guess updating my Nexus to Jelly Bean means I have to wait another six months before Sky update their app
